Stephen Curry not only plays ball but he will now executive produce a faith-based drama called “Breakthrough.” The film was just finalized a couple of months ago. This is one of the first ventures to be announced since Steph launched his media company, Unanimous Media, earlier this year.
Via The Holywood Reporter, Unanimous Media has an overall film and TV deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment and is developing many of his own projects but Curry couldn’t pass up getting involved with the Breakthrough since it correlates with his own focus on faith and family material.
This project is based on Joyce Smith booked “The Impossible.” It is based on a true story of how Joyce’s son, John Smith, fell through the ice and drowned and was declared legally dead. However, an hour later, the basketball-loving 14-year-old was “miraculously revived through the power of prayer.”
A recent statement Steph shared his thoughts, “John’s story is nothing short of incredible. It’s a story about the power of prayer and perseverance and one I immediately connected to. After reading the script, I knew I wanted to be apart of bringing it to life onscreen.”
Steph made the announcement via Twitter.
